On Claims of Deity

“God is not a man that he should be deceitful (Numbers 23:19)”: Rabbi Abbahu said, “If a man should say to you, ‘I am God’, he is a liar; ‘I am the son of man,’ his end will be that he will regret it (i.e., his assertion); ‘I am going up to heaven, he spoke, but it will not be fulfilled.”

TJ Taanit 2:1, 65b
